Had a great meal - can recommend the prawns, scallops and salmon. Service was great and there was a great 'vibe' about the place. Great for all the family with many food and drink options. It is worth saving some room for the yummy desserts.

We had a lovely meal at a reasonable price at Dixie Browns. Staff were very friendly and attentive without going over the top. Food was delicious and I could have definitely eaten a lot off that menu!

Rang half an hour before going for lunch and they took 13 of us for a family luncheon. The service throughout the time we were there was excellent. Only comment was I had to ask for water. All of us had different drinks and dishes however this did not faze the staff at all and there was no undue wait... More

We didnt actually end up eating here so cant comment on the food but can say the service is pretty poor. We tried to get a table on saturday night but they were full to bursting so no go which was fine except the man (possibly the owner) who turned us away was extremely rude about it. I dont think...

We walked in on a Friday night and were greeted at the door with a smile. Seated immediately and had a young lad wait on us. He was brilliant. Attentive to our needs and always offering refills of our drinks promptly. We ordered both a pizza and something of the normal menu. Both were amazing. Considering the price, you get... More

We ate at Dixie Browns when we stopped off in Taupo for lunch when we drove from Rotorua to Napier. I fell violently sick after having the double thick milkshake and pizza. I think the milk shake contained off-milk - After drinking it I immediately threw up in the toilets, and continued to throw up for the next hour. My... More

So I gave up and ordered eggs on toast. I specifically asked for firm eggs.The eggs came back runny. After I asked for... More

We went here twice over our weekend away in Taupo. The food was pretty good with average prices and we found the service outstanding. There was a long wait for food as they were packed full, but the waiters/waitresses were very attentive despite the business. We were thoroughly impressed by the service

This almost American family diner with lake views doesn't quite make it. It obviously caters for families, but lacks that 'special' atmosphere. The food selection has plenty of options, some a bit expensive for the average family, and a good drinks list. Our food was competetently served, without fuss and was nicely presented and well cooked. There is no 'chef's... More
